Boombox: Rhettmatic & House Shoes

BOOMBOXApril 7th 2012

I don’t think I have to tell you about these two gentlemen who are staples in LA’s music scene. Mr. Rhettmatic has a gang of albums and has collaborated with great folks like Eric Bobo,  Buff1 and has DJ’d events like the Do Over. And House Shoes, what can I say?! If you know House Shoes you know he’s not just the guy from Detroit that plays records. Beside the given House Shoes is the connector, producer, co-signer, and coming out with his LP  later this year. I’m guessing you’ll get a sneak peek of his album and some exclusive tracks. It’ll be good times. You can count on these cats to bring the heat. And I can’t forget the fellas spinning great tunes   Inka OneBen Diggin, and DJ Analog will be in the house. Head to Boombox to get a quality show.

Inka One – Zojirushi Mix (Soundwaves)

First off, I have no idea about the water bottle, and second Inka One is crazy with this Zojirushi Mix. I mean check out the tracklist. He goes from Black Milk, Little Dragon, to J. Rocc & Dam Funk. That’s not all, he’s got some local celebrities on this like DevonWho, Aspect 1, & J. Bizness. Inka One drops lots of exclusive and unreleased tracks, so this is a mix worth downloading. I would not be surprised if he knows each people/group personal. Head out to Boombox every 1st Saturday at Grand Star, and also check Soundwaves with Abraham & Ms. Cecilia every Saturaday night/early Sunday morning (midnight – 2) on KPFK (90.7fm) BIG thanks Inka One for the heads up.
